Scoot marks merger with $99 fares from Perth to Singapore


So farewell to Tigerair Singapore and hello to a new combined budget airline that will operate under the Scoot brand.

From today, all previous Tigerair flights will be operated under the Scoot brand and Scoot flights will operate under the TR flight designator code.

This marks the completion of the Scoot-Tigerair integration process that began last May when the airlines were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.

Scoot is the low-cost, medium-to-long haul arm of the Singapore Airlines.

Scoot CEO Lee Lik Hsin said: “As we come to the end of Tigerair’s journey, we open up a brand new chapter for Scoot building on what Tigerair and the old Scoot had achieved since their respective inceptions.

"We are stronger than we have ever been before, and consequently in an even better position to offer our guests more choice, connectivity and value. The enhanced Scoot that we are introducing today is spunky and sassy, and promises to create more travel opportunities for our guests.”

In conjunction with the single brand celebration, Lee also disclosed five new destinations that Scoot will fly to by June 2018.

Among them are Honolulu, Scoot’s maiden United States destination, and Harbin in north-east China. The remaining three are short-haul destinations: Kuching and Kuantan in Malaysia, and Palembang in Indonesia.

Coupled with the addition of the previous Tigerair network, the five new services will bring Scoot’s total destination count to 65 across 18 countries.

Beyond new destinations, Scoot’s crew members, affectionately named Scootees, will be outfitted with new uniform designs.

There is a celebratory sale on right now at www.flyscoot.com with fares from $99 to Singapore from Perth.
